ORLANDO, Fla., July 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Westgate Resorts, the largest privately held developer in the vacation ownership industry, is pleased to announce that the percentage rate of activated accounts for its new co-brand credit card, the Westgate Rewards MasterCard®, has skyrocketed within the first 30 days of its launch on June 13, 2013.

The popularity of the new Westgate Rewards MasterCard® can be traced to several factors, including a points-based loyalty program, flexible financing options, exclusive resort discounts, convenient online account activation and management, and no annual fee. Once approved for the Westgate Rewards MasterCard®, new Westgate Resorts owners will have the option to place their timeshare payment onto their Westgate Rewards MasterCard®, on a 6-month deferred interest promotion payment plan.

"We are constantly striving to provide our current and future owners with options to simplify their lives, allowing them to focus on spending quality time with family and loved ones and less time worrying about the financials of it all," said Mark Waltrip, Chief Operating Officer of Westgate Resorts. "The Westgate Rewards MasterCard® allows owners to offset the cost of their timeshare ownership and enhance the quality of their vacation time at Westgate."
